Half a century ago, Dr. King devoted his life to one dream. He wanted black people to live equally with white people. In his time, white people were considered superior to blacks, and he wanted to change that.

As an American Muslim, I think this is an example of the true Jihad, which is a continuous struggle for a noble cause. Dr. King kept on going even though people were trying to kill him. He openly told everyone about his dream. This is what Jihad is all about. This is what Islam is all about.
